The National Film Award-winning Rajasthani film 'Turtle', featuring actor Sanjay Mishra, is facing 'difficulties' in getting a theatrical release, says producer Ashok Chaudhary.
Sanjay Mishra opines that if a National Award-winning movie is not shown to people across the country, the credit is a waste.
Mishra was addressing questions on his upcoming movie Turtle, which has bagged the National Award for Best Rajasthani Film.
The film deals with the problem of water crisis in the villages of Rajasthan.
The actor said, "A National Award-winning film has to be showcased across India in order to make people aware [of it]. Otherwise it becomes a waste. The government should showcase this film across India. Since this film is based on global warming, it should be showcased in all schools. Also, a one-rupee ticket should be charged from all kids in schools so that the producer can feel motivated, since he has made a film on a very important issue."
